Top 3 Benefits of Custom Leather Jacket Alterations, Manhattan, New York

Not everyone’s measurements line up with the size chart, which is why many people seek out custom leather jacket alterations. A skilled tailor will take your body measurements, match the leather, add length, take in seams, or hem the sleeves to fit exactly how you want them. The measuring process only takes a few minutes, and you can expect your jacket back within a week, at most. Prices are affordable, and the results are long-lasting—quality leather wear can be passed on from generation to generation.  

Why You Should Custom Tailor Your Leather Jacket


A custom-tailored jacket creates a more flattering appearance. When the sleeves are the right length and the hem falls at the perfect spot on your torso, it complements your shape and provides you with a tidy, put-together look. As such, you’ll wear the item more often—and feel confident doing so.

When the fit is tight against your body, the jacket will stay in place with less bulk, and you’ll have enough room to move freely. If you wear your jacket for riding a motorcycle, for example, this will really pay off: it’s a safety hazard to have a loose leather jacket flapping in the wind. 


Even if you don’t plan to hop on the back of a motorcycle, a close fit results in increased warmth, making your leather piece a go-to staple during cool weather. While a loose, baggy coat lets the cold and wind in, a snug fit keeps your body heat contained, increasing wearability, no matter what the weather is like.
